TrackingPoint recently unveiled its newest precision-guided firearm – the squad-level M1400 338LM bolt-action rifle designed to engage targets moving up to 20 mph out to 1400 yards.

The M1400 announcement is one of a series of new products that Tracking Point is marketing to Army and Marine Corps squads. The company previously announced the M600 Service Rifle and the M800 Designated Marksman Rifle.

“The M1400 provides a clear advantage against any adversary in our current and future conflicts, including our current war on radical Islamic terrorism. Coupled with the M600 and M800, our Army and Marine Corps squads now can bring withering dominance to the field of battle,” said John McHale, TrackingPoint CEO.

“Extreme distance lethality is no longer the exclusive domain of trained snipers. With minimal training, any soldier can reliably deliver lethality well beyond what is possible for today’s expert marksmen.”

The M1400 features Tracking Point’s RapidLok Target Elimination Fire Control System, the release states.

“As a soldier or Marine pulls the trigger, the target is automatically acquired and tracked. When trigger pull completes, the target is instantly eliminated,” according to the release. “Total Time-To-Kill (TTK) is approximately 2.5 seconds.”

RapidLok Fire Control is image stabilized and has an auto-snap feature that automatically adjusts point-of-impact to target center of mass, the release states.

Also, target velocity is instantly measured and calculated in the launch solution. RapidLok incorporates a laser-based Barrel Reference System that ensures shot-to-shot perfect zero eliminating error from shock, vibration, or environmental changes such as temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure, according to the release.

The M1400 is 45 inches long and features a 22-inch barrel. It weighs 15.4 pounds. The M1400 retails for $16,995 and is available for order now.
